A Hope for Helping Others support group for survivors of breast cancer is meeting at the Soltman Center in Grangeville at 10:00 a.m. every Monday in July. Co-facilitators for the group are Carol McLean, Licensed Professional Counselor, and Sr. Corinne Forsman, SMHC Mission Integration Director. The July 30th session will feature Doris Bevins, PT, a lymphodema specialist from St. Joseph’s Regional Medical Center.
Lymphodema is the swelling that can occur when lymph nodes are removed. She will talk about methods to lessen the likelihood of its occurrence and to help offset its effects. There is no charge for this session and any one is welcome to attend. “It is not necessary to attend the prior support sessions to attend Doris’ informal presentation,” said Sr. Corinne. “Any one is welcome to attend any session if they cannot make the whole series.”
Registration is not required, but is appreciated. Please contact Sr. Corinne, 208-507-1308 or Carol McLean, 208-926-7632 for further information or to informally register. The series is sponsored by St. Mary’s Hospital and Clinics.
